It always amazes me the optimism that surrounds a team when a new coach takes over.
Just look at NMSU. This program has not been good and struggled mightily during the Hal Mumme ere. DeWayne Walker is here and the entire attitude has shifted going into the new year.
First off, a new coach brings a breath of fresh air and a new perspective. What will he bring? A bowl bid? There is a newfound excitement.
It takes a special type of coach to turn around the situation that NMSU finds itself in. Is Walker the right man? Time will tell. Judging from the comments by Aggie fans, many believe, or at least are praying, that he is.
